Scope and Contents

Zdzislaw Czermanski (1896-1970) was born in Cracow, Poland and went to France and Brazil before settling in the United States in 1943. He is known for his caricatures.

The Zdzislaw Czermanski collection consists of fifty mixed media paintings by Czermanski which are satirical portraits of many famous artists of the twentieth century, including painters, sculptors, writers, conductors and musicians. Among the figures represented are Gertrude Stein, Marc Chagall, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Jean Sibelius. Three works from the Artinian Art Collection are described and housed with the Zdzislaw Czermanski Collection: a portrait of Maurice Vlaminck riding a bicycle, with a caricature of André Malraux seated between the legs of Charles de Gaulle on verso (70.67.21); a portrait of François Mauriac wearing a monk's habit (70.67.31); and a portrait of Marcel Proust (70.67.50). A complete index of subjects is included in this finding aid.

The media are usually a combination of one or more of the following: tempera, watercolor, chalk, charcoal, graphite pencil, and colored pencil. Many pieces are bold in color although some are sketch-like and have very little color. Many of the pieces have notes written by Czermanski in graphite pencil which were erased, leaving the notes barely visible. Dimensions are 55 x 84.3 cm. and 80 x 58.5 cm or smaller.
